A freelance editor, I specialize in fiction but I've worked on non-fiction as well as web copy, corporate literature, and non-profit materials. I also edit and write for the group blog Magnificent Nose, which covers many topics but gravitates towards articles about writing and reading.

I'm also a lyricist; a guitarist, most recently for the band Baroque & Hungry; and I'm a touring cyclist.

You can contact me about editing matters here. (Please don't use this form for Stack Exchange business; instead, ping me in chat.)

We don't have any questions about editing books, but we do have one about writing books: What are good reads about writing?

If you want style guide links, these questions may be of interest: What are the most common style manuals? and What are widely-used UK-English style guides?

comment References or tips for book editing (self-published books)
What kind of resources are you looking for, exactly? Style guides? Books about editing? Lists of editors to hire? And wasn't this originally meant to be about poetry editing?

comment Naming my character
@LaurenIpsum Good eye, these two are very closely related; but I think the two are different enough. (Answers to one don't apply to the other.)

comment Originality of Writing
The underlying question seems to be, "how can I avoid showing my influences," yes?
